We all have a new life mantra thanks to Phil Miller, the resigned Everyman inhabited by Saturday Night Live vet Will Forte. Phil Miller is salting the rim of an inflatable kiddie pool filled with tequila so that he can bathe in it, drink out of it, or sometimes do both. Phil Miller, you see, is the last man on earth. And Forte is just about the perfect guy to play this lonely, drunk-and-sticky hero.
“He’s pretty close to what I’m like, pretty much, in my life,” Forte tells me. “There are a lot of similarities between me and the character—the good and the bad.”
